When I adopted Riley two years ago, a good friend suggested that I get pet insurance. I honestly didn't think I would need it with a such a young dog. Thankfully I signed up with Trupanion, it's turned out to be one of the best decisions for the health of my dog and my pocket book. What I thought was a a leg injury turned out to be severe brain swelling. Luckily Riley is receiving treatment from the best of the best and I don't have to make decisions based on money. I filed his claim and less than a week later, I received approval with a message that the check was in the mail.
